OK, good people. The dominoes that represent Florida politics are falling and falling fast. Gov. Charlie Crist announced his run for the U.S. Senate on Tuesday and FL CFO Alex Sink announced her run for Florida governor on Wednesday. The Republican Party of Florida quickly ran their "Floridians Won't Sink Florida" e-mail blast after Sink's announcement.
Conventional wisdom says Attorney General Bill McCollum will jump in the Florida governor's race as Sink's Republican challenger.
Fellow Republican Marco Rubio, the only other Republican candidate in the U.S. Senate race, has criticized Crist's moderate views and early endorsements by Party brass thus far. Crist is the perceived frontrunner but you never know what may happen in politics. Expect a spirited race with Democrats Kendrick Meek, Dan Gelber and Kevin Burns who've already begun campaigning.
